Christian B Wiki – Christian B Biography
Christian B was identified as Convicted rapist and paedophile, the man responsible for the three-year old’s kidnap and murder by the German authorities in June.
Madeleine McCann’s parents face fresh heartache after prosecutors revealed they would not be charging the prime suspect until next year at the earliest.
Christian B is 43 years old.
Murder of Madeleine McCann
Madeleine Beth McCann disappeared on the evening of 3 May 2007 from her bed in a holiday apartment at a resort in Praia da Luz, in the Algarve region of Portugal.
She was on holiday from the UK with her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann; her two-year-old twin siblings; and a group of family friends and their children. She and the twins had been left asleep at 20:30 in the ground-floor apartment, while the McCanns and friends dined in a restaurant 55 meters (180 ft) away.
The parents checked on the children throughout the evening, until Kate discovered she was missing at 22:00. Over the following weeks, particularly after misinterpreting a British DNA analysis, the Portuguese police came to believe that Madeleine had died in an accident in the apartment and that her parents had covered it up.
The McCanns were given arguido (suspect) status in September 2007, which was lifted when Portugal’s attorney general archived the case in July 2008 for lack of evidence.
The suspect in the Madeleine McCann case is being investigated over a separate child sex allegation a month before she vanished in Portugal.
The German drifter known as Christian B is suspected of exposing himself and performing a sex act in front of a young girl on a beach in 2007.
German prosecutor Hans-Christian Wolters, who is investigating Christian B in the Madeleine case, revealed his new investigation to Sky News.
Madeleine disappeared from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on Portugal’s Algarve coast in May 2007. Christian B – who has convictions for rape and child abuse – is currently serving 21 months for drug offenses in Germany’s Kiel prison.
At the end of last month, we reported how Scotland Yard detectives reportedly held a secret meeting with German and Portuguese police in Lisbon in a bid to find Madeleine.
The aim of the conference was to fine-tune suspect Christian B’s profile to try to work out where the child’s body may have been buried after she was kidnapped, with German cops believing she is dead.
The meeting is said to have taken place “recently” at the Lisbon HQ of the Policia Judiciaria (PJ), the force heading the Portuguese probe into the three-year-old’s disappearance, reports daily newspaper Correio da Manha.
Three wells near Praia da Luz are known to have been searched in July but police and firefighters failed to find any trace of Madeleine.
